in illinois, west virginia and delaware will take office more or less immediately after votes are canvased and certified and they'll be serving in the lame-duck session. i believe that voters in those states will render a very clear judgment on this lame duck agenda by sending additional reinforcements for our side of the aisle. the campaign strategy of our friends on the other side of the aisle is crystal clear. they are not running on their legislative accomplishments because it's largely unpopular. and they are worried that voters will hold them accountable for the failure of those policies to meet their own stated goals. so they're running campaigns against the american people, some of whom are participating in the political process for the first time. and i'm talking about the tea party movement. calling some of these participants in the process guaranteed by the first amendment of the constitution to redress their government on their grievances and they're deemonizing members of the tea party -- demonizing members of the tea party movement. and president obama has engaged in class wa

island, did not ratify the document until after the country was established. but five states, virginia, massachusetts, new york, maryland and south carolina sent specific amendments that should be added to the document. foremost in each of those states' amendments was the concept of sovereignty or the ability of states to make the decisions. their goal and their concepts were incorporated in the 10th amendment to the constitution which put in written form the unnamed structure that the founding fathers had established in the constitution. as one of our justices on the supreme court said, the constitution protects us from our own best intentions. it divides power among branches of government precisely so we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as the expedient solution to the crisis of the day. for a century and a half, this nation basically honored that concept. in the last half century, though, we have stretched the idea significantly. starting with the progressive era in the early 1900's'. it was president wilson who called this political witch craft. he sai

fundraising dinner. the former chairman of virginia's democratic party writes about her this morning in "the washington post," says sarah palin saved the g.o.p. here how he concludes -- palin started as tonto, but became the lone ranger. she runs mains strong and stood by her party. she's become a bridge between the old republican guard and the growing right-wing dissatisfaction, not just about democrats, but also with republican office holders. palin's ability to advocate for using the g.o.p., not a third party to channel this angst has allowed republican voter anger to boil, yet not boil over. should republicans run up the score in november, sarah palin will deserve a lot of credit she will never get. guest: i don't know whether she'll get it, but i think that's a very accurate assessment. i think palin has been great. she's been a dynamo. she has advocated for conservative principles unapologetically. when they tried to beat her down, she bounces right back, and she's right back in her faces, and she set an example. and really, do you realize what it's like to have the entire media machin
